The location of this place is great, in the city centre of Rotterdam. I like that the tea lab has an option for a vegan high tea (price is around 22.95 per person). Because the place is in the city centre (and quite popular among young people) it can be very crowded. The tables are all next to each other, and you do not have a very private "space" to sit while having tea / coffee. On the positive side: the amount of food you get on the high tea platter is more than enough. The 'sharp sharp' deserts are amazing. A nice suggestion would be if you could choose your own tea flavours.

Every weekend its very crowded. You can have your babyshower or birthday celebration here with a high tea. But there is a time maximum. Also great to cone with friends or alone. They have a good wifi but also various sandwiches, tea and coffee and also juices.

We chose the Tea Lab due to their clearly marked vegan options. I had the olive tapenade toastie which was surprisingly good - I don't really know why I chose it as it's usually not my thing at all but I was really pleased with it. I also had the turmeric latte which was nice but the turmeric taste was a bit too strong for me - I think it would be better if you got it without food.

It was really busy and we struggled to find a seat so we were stuck at the top of the stairs with a tiny table which wasn't ideal for eating from but the food and atmosphere were great. Would love to go back and have vegan high tea some time!

We didn't order the high tea. But we saw many people order the high tea. I ordered toast with mozzarella, pesto and dried tomato. Was great. Too bad you have to order by yourself at the counter and pay directly. If you sit upstairs then you have to ho downstairs a couple of times if you want to order again. But the place is very nice.

We visited The Tea Lab for lunch and tea, and it was so so amazing! Even though there was some sort of construction right across the street, when you'd enter the tea lab you could barely hear any of the noise. We went upstairs and had a Koala tea (yes, the tea names are very funny), a tempeh sandwich and a gado gado salad.
The food was delicious, the tea was served in a very impressing thingy to enhance your experience, the staff super friendly and the prices well balanced regarding the service and experience quality.
Would totally recommend it!
